Hands-On Learning and Assessment

CrossBraining is used in hands-on classrooms across the nation to make assessing hands-on skills faster and more comprehensive.

Our pedagogy-backed approach not only makes assessment part of the learning process, it provides a faster and more complete picture of a student's skills. All while helping you manage the chaos of a hands-on classroom.

Can you find any mistakes?

Video assessments are comprehensive assessments. This actual welding video shows a student's welding technique, work quality, and adherence to safety procedures.

 

HOW IT WORKS

CrossBraining has students create short (less than one minute) videos of themselves performing the skills you've taught them. The entire process is guided by pedagogical research that keeps the focus on learning. For example, what other platform thought to remove background audio so that a noisy workshop doesn't ruin a student's video?

Through these videos, educators are able to quickly and fully assess a student's skills. Plus, making the videos becomes part of the learning process.

We've also built in classroom management tools, such as groups and real-time status monitoring.

Yes, you can do hands-on learning remotely

CrossBraining was built for in-person learning,  but we made sure that it can work remotely, too. For example, by removing the background audio from videos and letting the student record their narration separately, we make sure that barking dogs or noisy siblings don't interrupt a learning session.

We've also included real-time status dashboards so that educators can instantly check the progress of their students and give them feedback as they complete their videos.

One CrossBraining partner even ships lesson materials to students' homes so that they can record their videos using actual equipment. That's innovation.
